It was my dad who inspired me to first try making this candy. He remembered it from when he was a boy. The ultimate compliment was when he told me my version tasted even better! My husband's a driver with a parcel service. As you can probably guess, he works long hours around the holidays—that gives me time for making treats! We have a 2-year-old (he likes to jump up on a chair and help in the kitchen) and a second child due in March.

"About how long did you have to cook this?"

"So many people on my xmas list love these than I could not dream of not making them every year. Lucky for me they are very easy to make. I have found it helpful to sift my baking soda thru a small sieve before adding so that it mixes in smoothly."
